Running regrets. I haven’t been able to run the last seven days due to incredible muscle soreness. On one hand I know I’m hitting new muscle groups. But I miss my runner’s high! What’s made me sore!? I’ve added abductor & adductor work. I used to think those were only good for resting—you know, to make phone calls & text. Well, that IS what I see people doing on those machines. In fact, I once saw a gal watching a Hallmark Channel movie on her phone!. But add the right amount of weight-- 100 & 90 lbs.-- and romance is the last thing on my mind, well, most of the time anyway!
Relieving Soreness 1/Hydrate-water is best. Don’t’ waste your money on “energy” drinks. Not necessary at all. 2/Stretch-Before and after work outs. I do a lot of this while watching TV at night. 3/Massage-work out areas with hands and/or a roller—even a tennis ball under the glutes works well. 4/Epsom Salts Bath-Love these. Usually take 1-2 a week (6 in winter). Experts say it’s like a meditative experience for our muscles. 5/Eat Pineapple or tart cherries-Both help with inflammation 6/Watch form-while working out watch your form. Bad posture or stance can add to soreness.
BTW: for the first time—ever—I chose worst pics out of the bunch. Millie & Roxy looked so darn cute as both came up & posed showed their booty. I had 7 pics to & chose the two worst—bad booty shots, no flexing. But would you look at my girls!??! .
